telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


I'm Addicted to Really Big Things


With abysmal tv viewing options, the Wiz and I have gravitated towards impressive educational programming. Really Big Things is on The Discovery Channel. As you might guess, it’s about *really big things*, and how they work or are made. Just last night we got to learn how the gigantic sand islands that make up Dubai’s resort area are made.  That might not be up your alley, so a few weeks ago we saw how one of the biggest Canadian off-shore oil rigs was built. I’ve got to tell you, it’s a pretty neat show. Plus, then you get to say you like Really Big Things too, and not be inappropriate :-)
